Ronald Doig Bowe (born 10 December 1939) is a former Australian sportsman who played Sheffield Shield cricket with Western Australia and Australian rules football for South Fremantle in the West Australian National Football League (WANFL).
He made his first-class cricket debut in the 1967/68 Sheffield Shield season, against Victoria at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Opening the batting, Bowe had put on 30 runs in the first innings before retiring hurt. He came back to the crease with the side four down and went on to make 86 before being bowled by Alan Connolly. In the second innings, Western Australian required just 19 for victory, which Bowe and his opening partner Derek Chadwick achieved without losing a wicket. At the conclusion of the match, Bowe had a first-class average of 97 but that would fall sharply as he could only put together a further 13 runs in his next four innings. His first two were against the West Indies in 1968/69, where he was dismissed by Wes Hall twice. He also played a Shield match against Victoria that season, this time at the WACA, but scored a duck and four.
